All the basic principles of the field of aromatic chemistry are clearly presented in this important account. Many compounds of industrial and biological significance are used as examples with consideration given to structure, reactions, and properties. Topics such as thermodynamic versus kinetic control and pericyclic reactions are also introduced. In addition to benzene and the classes of aromatic compounds derived from it, the text covers polycyclic arenes, and the small and large ring systems which are embraced by the wider definition of aromaticity. The text will be especially useful for courses in organic chemistry.

Organic Chemistry for General Degree Students, Volume 2: Aromatic Chemistry presents the fundamental aspects of aromatic chemistry. This book explores the systematic study in the first instance of the chemistry of functional groups, based on their structural characteristics in aliphatic systems. Organized into 11 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the properties of the aromatic nucleus followed by a consideration of the manner in which interaction with the aromatic system may alter the reactivity of functional groups. Other chapters explain the two distinctly different classes of aromatic halogen compounds. This text discusses as well the properties of an aromatic amine, which is characterized by having at least one aromatic system attached to the nitrogen atom and may be further categorized as primary, secondary, or tertiary according to the degree of substitution of the nitrogen. The final chapter examines the classical structure for thiophen. This book is a valuable resource for organic chemists and students.
Organic Chemistry for General Degree Students
Author: P.W.G. Smith,A.R. Tatchell
Aromatic organic hydrocarbons and heterocycles represent a bulk of about one third of all industrially produced organic basic materials. Aromatic compounds such as benzene, phenol, naphthalene, anthracene, and their homologues, are derived from raw materials, coal, crude oil and biogenic resources by thermal and catalytic refining processes. This book introduces the chemistry of aromatics with a brief discussion of the aromatic character and a survey of historical aspects, particularly the development of the organic dye industry during the 19th century. The main emphasis of the book is to give a clear prospect of industrial processes for the production and the derivatisation of aromatics with consistent flow diagrams. Economical aspects of by- and side-products are especially regarded. For the most important aromatics an analysis of the international market included their derivatives: polymers, pesticides, dyes, pigments and drugs. Professional scientists, managers and students in chemistry and chemical engineering will find a wealth of information for their career and daily work.

This book is written for B.Sc. (Hons.) and M.Sc. students of various universities. In this book my aim has been describe the fundamental principles of organic chemistry. Since I do not consider the chemistry of natural products to be fundamental chemistry but rather the application of fundamental principles. The subject matter described in this book covers much of the basic organic chemistry that is needed by a student who which to study chemistry as a main subject at degree level. The arrangement of the subject-matter is based on homologous series and in general, descriptions of reactions are followed by discussion of their mechanisms and these includes an elementary account of the sort of evidence that led workers to suggest mechanisms that are acceptable at the present time.

Second Supplements to the 2nd Edition of Rodd's Chemistry of Carbon Compounds, Volume III: Aromatic Compounds spans several very important areas of aromatic chemistry. It contains five chapters (Chapters 8-12) devoted to benzoquinone, nitro compounds, metallo derivatives, and aromatic hydrocarbons. The book begins with a chapter containing literature on benzoquinones and related compounds published from the 1970s to mid-1994. Subsequent chapters cover materials on derivatives of benzenoid hydrocarbons with substituents containing a single nitrogen atom; aromatic compounds of the non-transition metals; aromatic compounds of the transition elements; and nuclear substituted benzenoid hydrocarbons with more than one nitrogen atom in the substituent.

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, many of which have been identified as potent human carcinogens, occur widely in the environment as a result of incomplete combustion of fossil fuels and other organic matter. Major sources of emissions are wood and coal burning, automobiles, heat and power plants, and refuse burning. This volume reviews the chemistry of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their active metabolites, providing up-to-date information on their chemical and physical properties, methods of synthesis, enviromental occurrence, and chemical reactions. It also surveys their biological properties, metabolism and metabolic activation, and current concepts concerning their mechanisms of carcinogenesis. The emphasis throughout is on recent findings and newer methods and techniques. This book provides a comprehensive overview of this currently active field of research, bringing together in a single volume a large amount of information previously scattered throughout the scientific literature. It may be read with profit by anyone with an interest in the chemistry and metabolism of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, environmental chemistry and chemical carcinogenesis.

Advances in Physical Organic Chemistry
Publisher: Academic Press
The breadth of scientific and technological interests in the general topic of photochemistry is truly enormous and includes, for example, such diverse areas as microelectronics, atmospheric chemistry, organic synthesis, non-conventional photoimaging, photosynthesis, solar energy conversion, polymer technologies, and spectroscopy. This Specialist Periodical Report on Photochemistry aims to provide an annual review of photo-induced processes that have relevance to the above wide-ranging academic and commercial disciplines, and interests in chemistry, physics, biology and technology. In order to provide easy access to this vast and varied literature, each volume of Photochemistry comprises sections concerned with photophysical processes in condensed phases, organic aspects which are sub-divided by chromophore type, polymer photochemistry, and photochemical aspects of solar energy conversion. Volume 34 covers literature published from July 2001 to June 2002. Specialist Periodical Reports provide systematic and detailed review coverage in major areas of chemical research. Compiled by teams of leading authorities in the relevant subject areas, the series creates a unique service for the active research chemist, with regular, in-depth accounts of progress in particular fields of chemistry. Subject coverage within different volumes of a given title is similar and publication is on an annual or biennial basis.

"This is one of the most important studies of nineteenth century chemistry produced during the past two decades. Building on his equally important earlier book . . . this work will establish Rocke as the leading scholar in this field."--Frederic L. Holmes, Yale University "With this work, Rocke has become the leading authority on German chemistry in the first two-thirds of the nineteenth century."--Kathryn M. Olesko, Georgetown University
